In the eddy current simulation mode in maxwell 3D, the current value you enter. Is that Vpeak from 0? Or Vpeak to peak?I attached a picture of what I am referencing.
So in the window am I generating a sine wave with a 6.788 A peak from 0?
Current (or voltage) values entered in the Eddy Current solver are peak values of a sinusoidal signal centered around zero.
You can create a named expression in the calculator for: integral J at phase on a terminal and plot vs phase angle to see the sinusoidal waveform.
I am using the eddy current simulator for two winding planar transformer simulation. please help in answering my few questions:
1. While giving the coil excitation as current should I give the peak value "Ipk" or write the trapezoidal current equation?
2. If I have two pcbs dedicated to one winding (two pcbs connected in parallel). Should I mention no of parallel branches as 2 or 1? Should i give the current excitation as "Ipk" or "Ipk/2"?
2. After giving a peak value as excitation, the flux density is too high which leads to high core losses. How can I reduce the flux density?
